Friday Mosque stands out thanks to its colorful, tiled walls, which remain a masterpiece in the art of creating and applying mosaics. Completed in the 15th century, the mosque serves as a major place of worship for the local population, and an interesting tourist site for visiting foreigners. Most visitors gain access through the eastern side of the building, which features a richly detailed facade designed to praise Allah. Dress modestly, remove your shoes at the entrance, and don't forget to ask for permission if you wish to take photos.
